Absolutely everything about this charmingly beautiful hotel. Everything about it is faultless. An oasis of tranquility and enjoyment. Breakfasts were a delight on the terrace and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Wonderful - thank you so much!
Location was fab short walk from the centre of Taormina and some really good restaurants on the same road, only a minute walk from the cable car to the beach. Room was clean and an alright size. Lovely garden to have drinks in before going out, and very good breakfasts!
2 min walk to cable car 2 min walk to Corso Umberto Great staff & friendly atmosphere
Great location, close to the bus terminal, the cable car and the city center without being in the noisy areas. Very friendly and helpful staff.
Room size and quality was really poor for the price, one of the worst in >500 hotel nights I had in the past years. But I doubt that this is much different anywhere else in Taormina during the main season
I loved how close and centrally located with a view of the sea. The staff were very helpful and friendly.
We enjoyed the location, staff were very friendly, breakfast was very tasty, room was very clean, close to the cable, great view.
A little bit noisy in the middle of the night but nothing serious.
We were 2 couples and our rooms were near each other. Great views. Helpful staff, great terrace to have a drink and see the view. Great location to town and cable car to beach.
Be aware there is no lift and if on the 3 rd floor there is 6 flights of stairs. Staff are very willing to help U with your luggage. Parking is off site but nearby and costs.
Location is excellent. Easy trip to/from airport as hotel is very close to bus station. Entrance to cablecar and main attractions is also very close to hotel. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was good in lovely surroundings.
Road noise bit noisy although wooden window blinds help if pulled down at night.
The friendliness of the owner and staff and the view from the room
Clean very comfortable rooms well equipped and nice decor It makes you feel at home. Excellent breakfast
A bit pricey The stairs up can be uncomfortable
Staff - friendly and very helpfull. Breakfast - fresh, big variety, a lot of traditional dishes. Very nice breakfast terrace. Fresh red oranges juice! Room - we had room with sea view, which was unforgetable!!!! Location - near city center, but quite quiet. Condiotioning and wifi - good.
Location, near historical centre and cable car to beach. Very friendly and helpful staff. Accommodated us, being 2 couples traveling together, locating us next to each other.
Parking was nearby but 12€ per day. Travel guests should be aware that the hotel has 4 floors and NO lift. So not for the unfit.
Location of hotel is excellent for Taromina town, close to the bus station and to the gondola for the beach. Staff were very friendly. Room was very comfortable and we had an excellent view of the bay
Perfect location for everything; old town, lift down to Isola Bella, central bus station, shops etc. Well decorated, delicous breakfast, wonderful view, friendly staff.
The only thing I didn't feel comfortable was the car parking. The property doesn't have their own so you leave your car and the key to a seperate, private park, where during night cars are unattended. But nothings happened.
The location was great and convenient to go to the beach via the trolley next door.
We were going to a concert at the Teatro grecco and the hotel was excellently located for this. Shops and restaurants in the Main Street were a couple of minutes walk. Plus the cable car (1 minute walk) takes you down to some beautiful beaches. Staff were really helpful and friendly. The complimentary bar drink was also an unexpected nice surprise. I would stay here again and recommend to others.
Wifi was a bit hit and miss.
Everything, its my 5th time to this hotel and I love it !, staff is very nice and helpful, breakfast is amazing, location is great and only 150 meters from the centre.Rooms are big, bathrooms are great too, and everything is very clean. Will be back next summer !!
Superb boutique hotel perfectly situated to the town centre and cable car to the beach below.
The lovely staff who tried their hardest with inferior alternatives provided by a manager that spent 5 days avoiding contact so that he could honestly say "alternatives were offered": a true feat in a small hotel. The hope of honesty in the future - extremely tiny rooms should not be lumped with the lovely rooms at the high prices and guarantees should be kept. Impressive business policy of prebooking of credit card and non-standard cancelation policy meaning "you can never leave" and the manager get's his money at all costs. One of the highest per square meter prices ever paid - and this is just a 3 star! Good that pictures now appear on the main comparison portal that show what these rooms (6,10,15) are really like. Caveat Emptor!
Guaranteed a room 3 months in advance as in the pictures, received one 30% smaller (room 15 as well as 6 and 10) with the smallest shower ever (after 400+ hotels!). No room for luggage except on the bed. And evidently this is standard practice in the summer for non- italians who do not book direct. Shame its still family owned but no longer family run....
The staff could not have been more helpful. Happy hour in the garden and breakfasts on the terrace were great. Wonderful location.
Unfortunately, there is no elevator/lift. This was problematic for an older person, staying on the 1st floor (which is really the second floor).
If ever there was a well situated pensione, it must be the Pensione Svizzera! About 100 meters from the bus terminal, (very convenient) in Via lungi Pirandello, it's also just 50 meters walk to the funivia, or cable car station which goes down to the beach area for just 3 euros a person. Corso Umberto, the main shopping drag is just a little walk further down Via Pirandello. The Pensione gave us exactly what we asked for, a quiet room with a sea view, we were on the third floor and had a beautiful view over the bay. They were also kind enough to have some breakfast items available for us for our early starts for day trips to Agrigento and Mt Etna. Lovely terrace area opens for happy hour from 5 or 6 pm in the evenings. Overall a lovely stay with kind staff, decent breakfast. Just be warned there's no lift and climb to third floor requires some effort!
Everything you'd expect,staff helpful, breakfast good
Can't say didn't like but our bedroom middle 2nd floor was onthe small side, but the view mote than compensated
The great views from our room and the breakfast terrace, the proximity of the cable car down to the beach (2 mins), the bus station (1 minute) and the main street (Corso Umberto), the breakfast choices, the friendly staff, the hotel cat.
No lift, WIFI a bit temperamental, cocktails at €4.50 a go not very boozy.
Definitely the location and the breakfast was fantastic as they had a wonderful variety.
That the pensione did not have a lift
A very good location in Taormina, for the Main Street but also, cable car and buses. The hotel is calm and comfortable with helpful staff.
